Oman vs Bangladesh Betting Tips 19/10/2021

Teams Status

Bangladesh

Thanks to Bangladesh’s upset defeat to Scotland in their tournament opener, this Group B fixture now has the makings of a knockout match for them.

Anything less than a win here could see them book a swift flight back for Dhaka. And even though, Oman are expected to present a lesser challenge than Scotland, nothing can be taken for granted – especially after Bangladesh’s loss and Oman’s crushing defeat of Papua New Guinea.

Against Scotland, Bangladesh weren’t outplayed or anything but they just did not go for the kill when on top and eventually came up short in crucial moments of the game.

Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim were guilty of being too slow in the run chase after the team lost both the openers early. Mahmudullah, too, took more time and balls than needed, eventually leaving too much to do for the lower order.

The Tigers now cannot afford to dawdle. Their angry fans would expect them to go for the jugular at the first sighting of the chance.

Oman

Oman will certainly be buoyed by their demolition of PNG in the opener. After restricting Guinea to just 129-9, their openers – Aqib Ilyas and Jatinder Singh – cruised to the target inside 14 overs.

That said, the tournament co-hosts had it easy in that 10-wicket win. Against Bangladesh, the bowling they’d face would certainly be much tougher.

The positives in bowling and batting aside, Oman captain should be concerned by his side’s poor show in the field. It did not matter against PNG but certainly would against better sides.

Tipster’s Angle

Tip: Highest opening partnership – Oman @ 2.5

Liton Das and Soumya Sarkar have long been considered talented but their body of work together does not justify the hype surrounding them. Against Scotland, they contributed five runs each and both had perished by the fourth over. On the other hand, the Omani pair shared a century-plus stand. One should not expect to hit the jackpot twice but based on the evidence we have, the Tigers’ openers are underachieving and under pressure, whereas their Omani counterparts must have their confidence sky-high. Therefore, we back the Omani openers to share a bigger stand than their Bangladeshi counterparts. The play can be found on 22Bet.

Tip: Total runs for Bangladesh in the opening over – Under 5.5 @ 1.87

In the aftermath of their upset loss to Scotland, the folks that are getting the most hate on social media are Sarkar and Das. Both must now be wary of taking more care of their wickets. They could go for a cautious approach, which means few runs in over number one. The play can be found on Dafabet.

Conclusion

Bangladesh have had their wake up call. They should now respond – even if not with a vengeance then with a professional job for the sake of collecting two points. The Tigers are our pick for this one.
